The solid 2600 plus GM Alexey Dreev, mainly regarded as a Caro-Kann and French player, has been playing the Classical Sicilian recently and answering the Richter-Rauser 6 Bg5 with ...Bd7 with very reasonable results (56%).   


Perhaps we spoke too soon: Dreev just got badly mauled in this line:

[Event "Chess Classic GM"]
[Site "Gausdal NOR"]
[Date "2007.04.25"]
[Round "8"]
[White "Lie, K."]
[Black "Dreev, A."]
[Result "1-0"]
[ECO "B60"]
[WhiteElo "2529"]
[BlackElo "2633"]
[PlyCount "63"]
[EventDate "2007.04.18"]

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 d6 6. Bg5 Bd7 7. Be2 e6 8.
Ndb5 Qb8 9. a4 Be7 10. Qd2 a6 11. Na3 Qc7 12. Rd1 Na5 13. Bf4 Qb6 14. Bxd6 Bxd6
15. Qxd6 Qxb2 16. Rd3 O-O-O 17. Nd1 Qa1 18. Rc3+ Bc6 19. Qe5 Nb3 20. Nc4 Nd7
21. Qg3 Nbc5 22. Nd6+ Kb8 23. Nxf7+ Ka8 24. Nxd8 Nxe4 25. Qe3 Rxd8 26. Rxc6
Ndf6 27. Rc4 Nd6 28. Qb6 Rd7 29. Qb2 Qxb2 30. Nxb2 Nxc4 31. Nxc4 Ka7 32. Bd3
1-0

In Chess Today, Ruslan Scherbakov commented: "This game shows how risky it may be
to play an opening in which you lack experience; even if you are a very strong grandmaster."

I always thought that this line was supposed to be borderline unsound.  Would you be willing to treat us with a sharing of your own understanding of it?

The "Classical" Sicilian is attractive to me, but I've stayed away from it because of the Richter Rauzer.


I support this question, for a similar reason: I always have thought 6...e6 being more precise than 6...Bd7 because of deviations from these transpositional lines:

a) 6...Bd7 7.Qd2 Nxd4 8.Qxd4 Qa5 (e6) 9.f4 (9.Bd2) Rc8 10.0-0-0 e6
b) 6...Bd7 7.Qd2 Rc8 8.0-0-0 Nxd4 9.Qxd4 Qa5 10.0-0-0 (10.Bd2) e6
c) 6...e6 7.Qd2 Nxd4 8.Qxd4 Bd7 9.0-0-0 Qa5 10.f4 Rc8
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

yes it definitely needs an update.


Sorry Inn2 - I did do a search for Richter on this section of the forum, to try to find out whether there was already a thread on 6 Bg5 Bd7, but it failed to throw up your post.

Perhaps it's time to ask Tony K to give us an update on this interesting line, which can lead to unusual positions.
